This was a treat! Quiet museum, right in the Marais, with lots of interesting exhibits. They had a very cool multimedia and hands-on exhibit on cars. It’s bigger than you think it is. We had 6-11...

This was a very interesting museum with a way bigger collection than we expected. My boyfriend loved it, as he studies engineering, but I also had a really good time. It is one of the calmer museums in Paris, but it's definitely not lesser in any way. Especially loved the part of the museum that was inside an old church. Highly recommend this place. There's also a little cafe and a cute shop.
It was very interesting for science lovers seeing all the old instruments but do quicken your pace to take more time at the end. The Foucault pendulum and the real cars display is at the end. Worth a visit for those who love Physics and wants to see learnt Instruments in real. I didn't plan two hours for this museum and had to rush at the end. But it is a very good choice for teenagers and kids who are passionate about scientific evolution.
